The list of social media networks is neverending. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Quora, LinkedIn and YouTube are just a handful of the dizzying amount of online networking options created for maximizing social interactions. Here's what works for us- and what we make work for you.
Event Page "Wall"
Facebook and Twitter users who connect their social media accounts to TicketLeap have the opportunity to engage with other event goers on the event wall.
By commenting on the event wall, attendees' responses also appear on their personal Facebook pages and Twitter feeds with a link to your event. Spreading the word has never been so easy.
Social Digest for Event Goers
A social digest email will be delivered to event goers after your event wall gathers activity.
This email addresses who's attending the event, what they're saying about it, and encourages attendees to spread the word, join the conversation and buy more tickets.
Invite Your Friends via Facebook, Twitter and Email
With the click of a button, your attendees can invite any of their Facebook friends, Twitter followers and email contacts to your event. This can be done directly from your TicketLeap event page.
Twitter followers will receive a direct message while Facebook friends will get your invitation directly on their timeline.
Email contacts will receive their invite via their inbox.
Export Your Event to Facebook
Events can be exported to Facebook with another click of a button.
All event information will transfer from your TicketLeap event page to a new Facebook event page.
Event Page "Like" Button
The Facebook "Like" button is powerful. With just one click, anyone with a Facebook account can add your event to the list of things they "like," which are then shared on their Facebook timeline.
The best part of this feature? They never have to leave your event page to spread the word!
By reaching out to blogs relative to your industry, the details of your event can reach people you never thought possible. TicketLeap's own blog highlights unique events in the "showcase" feature of our blog.
Please email TicketLeap's community manager if you'd like to see your event featured. Blog posts are published about a week before the event occurs and are cross-posted to all TicketLeap social media outlets.
Customize an Event Button or Widget for Your Website
By adding an event button or widget to your own organization's website, patrons can get to your TicketLeap event page in one simple click.
Pick your colors and text, add a tracking code for easy analytics, then copy/paste the html code onto your site.
Email blasts make it easy to contact all of your ticket buyers at one time. Whether it's to communicate a reminder or simply pump up the excitement level for your event, email blasts are a great way to connect to attendees via their inbox.
What Else Can I Do?
First thing's first: every organization needs Facebook and Twitter accounts to connect to their fans, followers, and event goers. For events like haunted houses, fashion shows, or musical festivals, Pinterest is a great tool to visually express your organization with pictures that link back to your TicketLeap event page.
Tumblr is a microblogging tool perfect for superfan niches like comic conventions, sports teams and even non profits. Run contests on your social media pages to spread the word of your event, encourage community engagement, and of course, create more fans. Create your own blog linked from your organization's website and update it weekly with new event information, staff interviews or picture posts to give your organization a "digital voice."
